A Novel Bookstore

(2010)
A novel by

 
Ivan, an incurable dreamer, and Francesca, a ravishing Italian heiress, are the owners of a bookstore that is anything but ordinary. Rebelling against the business of bestsellers and in search of an ideal place for their literary dreams to come true, Ivan and Francesca have opened a store where their passion for fiction is given free reign. Tucked away in a corner of Paris, The Good Novel offers its clientele literary masterpieces, both contemporary and classic, selected by a top-secret committee of likeminded connoisseurs. To Ivan and Francesca's amazement, the store proves a success. And that is when their troubles begin. At first, both owners shrug off the anonymous telephone threats and the venomous comments circulating the Internet, but when members of the selection committee are attacked, they decide to seek help from the police. One by one, the pieces of the puzzle fall ominously into place, as it becomes evident that Ivan and Francesca's dreams may be shattered by envy and violence.

A fable for lovers of good books and fine bookselling, A Novel Bookstore tells the story of what can be accomplished when one is driven by passion. Elegantly mixing the mystery and literary fiction genres, Laurence Cosse has written a tribute to literature and the world of books that readers will find rewarding and riveting from the first page to the last.
